Pine Creek RNG builds, owns and operates landfill and digester methane capture plants as well as other commercially viable waste-to-energy infrastructure facilities.
Renewable natural gas (RNG) is identical to fossil gas, but instead of drilling or fracking, RNG comes from anaerobic decomposition of garbage, sewage, farm waste, food waste or other organic waste streams. Capturing, processing and injecting RNG into natural gas pipelines is important to prevent leakage of methane into the atmosphere from decomposing waste. Methane warms the atmosphere considerably more than carbon dioxide (CO2) and is regulated by the EPA. Landfill owners and operators, as well as regulated waste producers, can mitigate their regulatory risks and manage their EPA compliance requirements using Pine Creek RNG.
Commercial and Industrial companies can purchase RNG to offset their carbon footprint, as has historically been accomplished by purchasing renewable electricity from solar, wind, hydro or other renewable sources.
